Post I'll try again

Thanks for the idea Johnny. It is the ceiling mainly--it was still tacky after the one scrub and rinse with simple green. Then the greased lightning---but no dirt on the paper towel so it was clean of dirt. Then I thought maybe the future made it stop the sticky stuff. It didn't work for me, but I am willing to scrub the future off and try again. I know the ceiling and walls are clean even if they are sticky. I'll run over to Walmart and try the orange stuff. Thing is my po kept it nice and no smoke.. Odd thing is, I actually enjoy cleaning the airstream...must be those future fumes have a stepford effect...LOL

I'm telling you that the Marine Clean from the Por people will do the job for you. I have used it on the entire inside of a 1978 Argosy with wonderful results. You cannot imagine the difference between the ceiling you do and the old ceiling that's sticky. You can also use it on the outside for cleaning. It doesn't smell and is not dangerous. I tried all the things you are mentioning until Balgrn recommended the Marine Clean. IT WORKS! The shellac has also done the job you want. I just went out and checked it again after several months just to make sure, it's perfect. Judy

I know it sounds too simple but when other options fail, try some odorless mineral spirits. It is the only thing that worked for me and with very little effort.
Have adequate ventilation and keep in mind it can be flammable until dry.

For cleaning sticky walls nothing beats Krud Kutter. Available at Lowe's or Wal-Mart in the paint section. Spray a one foot square and watch the dirt roll off use a paper towel to wipe. After serveral square feet, try a second cleaning of larger area. Another product from the Dollar Tree store is called Awesome Cleaner in a spray bottle for a buck. Use the same technique. Good luck

Try a product called Awesome. It's a general porpuse cleaner sold at dollar stores and discount grocers. It works - first time - and it's CHEAP. Be careful not to get it on your upholstry.
